Drops of sweat oozed out from Jing Meng Hun’s forehead and fell to the ground.

Diwu Qing Rou never reviewed the gains and losses of this mission, nor did he talk about what needed to be considered in future missions.

But his words had clearly demonstrated the fury inside Diwu Qing Rou’s heart!

Golden Horse Riders Department, what was the purpose of its creation?

It was for Diwu Qing Rou’s dream of world domination!

So if the Golden Horse Riders Department became an obstacle in Diwu Qing Rou’s path, Diwu Qing Rou would definitely dissolve it without any hesitation. He would do it as easily as the day he established the Golden Horse Riders Department!

Jing Meng Hun did not doubt this.

The Golden Horse Riders Department was established for Diwu Qing Rou’s own interest. But if they could not bring him any benefits, then why would they need to exist? What was the purpose? To waste money?

While King level masters were important, were they comparable to a powerful army? Could they directly help him conquer the world? No! If not, and they could not bring him any benefits, then what was the point of keeping them?

This was Diwu Qing Rou’s analysis. But using this analysis, for the first time, he strictly outlined his requirements for the Golden Horse Riders Department!

At the same time he put forward this point: It was possible for the Golden Horse Riders Department not to exist anymore!

“Dong Fang Qing Tian was wrong in that he trusted too much in his own abilities and his own wisdom. But I, Diwu Qing Rou, will not make the same mistake!” Diwu Qing Rou glanced at Jing Meng Hun and said slowly, “Therefore, a mistake like this one, I will only allow once and never a second time!”

Jing Meng Hun felt his body soaked with cold sweat as he said, “Rest assured, Prime Minister. There will definitely not be a second time!”

“I believe you!” Diwu Qing Rou somberly nodded his head and said, “Failure is not frightening! People dying is not frightening! Frightening is when failure makes you bewildered, and hatred leaves you blind! We will take revenge for Golden Horse Riders Department, but it is not time for revenge yet. No one is allowed to act rashly!”

Jing Meng Hun gritted his teeth and said, “Yes!”

At this time, Diwu Qing Rou finally nodded his head and asked, “How are Yin Wu Fa’s injuries?”

He had been suppressing this topic and did not let anyone mention it yet. But after he had completely controlled their emotions, he spoke of it. This was because Diwu Qing Rou knew that they essentially still maintained the habits of Jiang Hu people!

They could only achieve their full potential once these Jiang Hu habits are erased. Paying with the life of a King level leader was too expensive, but Diwu Qing Rou had recognized that this was the perfect opportunity!

Golden Horse Riders Department would do without a King level leader, but it could never be without control!

There was no doubt that this was something Diwu Qing Rou was very good at!

“Brother Yin’s injuries…” There was a trace of grief on Jing Meng Hun’s face, “No matter how serious the injuries are, the person only need to take my Meng Hun Solution, and they would survive for a month! But third brother’s legs…”

He suddenly looked up, “Official Cheng, I have a question for you. On the way, besides being robbed by the youths from the clans, did you run into anyone else?”

Cheng Yun He was startled, “King level leader Jing, what do you mean by that?”

“If he took my Meng Hun Solution, even if both of his legs are broken, I could still restore them to their original state. But third brother’s legs… right now, he is completely paralyzed from the waist down!”

Jing Meng Hun’s two eyes were red like blood as he stared intently at Cheng Yun He, “Such an injury clearly happened after taking Meng Hun Solution!”

Cheng Yun He looked up; he closed his eyes and, after long while, let out a sigh. Then he gritted his teeth and said, “With this matter, I don’t understand what energy or cultivation is; I am only in charge and capable of bringing the person home. And I did that to the best of my abilities!”

He pushed his neck out and pointed to that white neck with his finger while saying icily, “I can guaranteed that the body looked like a corpse, and no one bothered it on the way back! If King level leader Jing does not believe me or has any suspicions, my head is right here!”

Cheng Yun He held his head high and looked arrogantly, “Anyone from Golden Horse Riders Department can come and take it!”

Cheng Yun He was choking with extreme anger.

You people of Golden Horse Riders department are the ones in charge of the footwork, I was only there to supervise and assist! And it was ordered by the Prime Minister! Since you did not follow orders and did not cooperate, the mission that was almost complete became a failure. I went on a tough and dangerous journey to bring your brother back! Not only did you not thank me, you suspect that I secretly attacked him?

“Official Cheng’s reaction is too extreme!” Yin Wu Tian said coldly as he looked at Cheng Yun He with the gaze of a poisonous snake. Of course he still did not believe Cheng Yun He’s words.

“Extreme or not, righteousness exists in one’s heart!” Cheng Yun He finally lost control. He suddenly stood up and said loudly, “If I wanted Yin Wu Fa dead, I could have killed him ten thousand times on the way back here. Now that he is a disabled person, how does it benefit me?”

Cheng Yun He was indescribably angry!

“That’s enough!” Diwu Qing Rou gently raised his hand and slowly turned to look at Yin Wu Tian, “Fourth King level leader Yin, perhaps you believe that it would have been better for you brother to have died out there?”

Yin Wu Tian was startled. His body trembled as he spoke, “Please forgive me, Prime Minister. I just… have some doubts!”

“Then you should doubt our enemies. Don’t doubt the person who went through many hardships to bring your brother back!” Diwu Qing Rou said severely, “Yin Wu Tian, you should be more careful when you speak! If anything goes wrong because of your hatred… you should know what the consequences will be!”

Kong Shang Xin died, and Yin Wu Fa was disabled; the person who was in the most pain was Yin Wu Tian!

Diwu Qing Rou did not want to be so severe, but, right now, the only thing he could do was to toss the two words “human compassion” aside! If Yin Wu Tian’s hatred was allowed to thrive, then he did not know what form it would take. Therefore, even if Diwu Qing Rou did not want to, he could only suppress it!

Yin Wu Tian took a deep breath and said gravely, “The Prime Minister is right!”

“Gao Sheng, do you know which clan King of Hell Chu took advantage of?” Diwu Qing Rou asked. He had asked Gao Sheng to look into this issue seven or eight days ago. Diwu Qing Rou now asked with another intention as well.

“Ten days ago, there was news in Middle Three Heavens that the people of Hei Mo clan who went out came back to Middle Three Heavens!” Gao Sheng said cautiously, “There has also been a running joke that is spreading around. The Hei Mo clan sent out three King level leaders, but, when they returned, all three were gravely injured…”

“Hei Mo?” Yin Wu Fa’s two eyes widened.

“Yes, Hei Mo!” Gao Sheng said, “It was said that the Hei Mo clan was attacked by the Mo clan in Iron Cloud Citadel. But, after an investigation, it was shown that the Mo clan did not have any martial masters in Iron Cloud Citadel at that time…”

Jing Meng Hun and Yin Wu Tian held their breath with their eyes opened wide!

“Later on, King level leader Soul Catcher was forced to tell the truth.” Gao Sheng said slowly, “They had a fight with Golden Horse Riders Department… This caused an uproar in Middle Three Heavens!”

Jing Meng Hun and Yin Wu Tian ground their teeth loudly!

Hei Mo clan! (Walk the Jiang Hu)

So it’s the Hei Mo clan!

“The entire thing was orchestrated by King of Hell Chu. But, no matter what, the intention was to frame us!” Gao Sheng said, “The two King level leaders of the Hei Mo clan jointly stated… At the time, King of Hell Chu had told them clearly that their opponents were people of Golden Horse Riders Department. But the Hei Mo clan people owed King of Hell Chu a favor so they extended a helping hand!”

“Note that the key point here is: King of Hell Chu had stated things clearly in advance!” Gao Sheng emphasized, “Therefore, the Hei Mo clan could not blame King of Hell Chu!”

Everyone understood this principle very well. It was as if a person was told that another’s enemy was some imperial nation, but after hearing about it, that person must carry explosive on his back and bomb their shrine. It did not have anything to do with that person, right? But that person still wanted to…

“In that case, the Hei Mo clan has taken responsibility for the whole thing themselves?” There were two volcanoes on the verge of erupting in Yin Wu Tian’s eyes.

“Upper Three Heavens is not allowed to get involved with disputes between Middle Three Heavens clans. Middle Three Heavens is not allowed to participate in contentions between kingdoms in Lower Three Heavens! This is an unchanging rule of the Nine Heavens!” Gao Sheng raised his brows and said casually, “Those King level leaders of the Hei Mo clan broke the rules, and they have been placed under questioning! No matter how this matter was dealt with, it has been done! So anyone who wants to bring this up again would be extremely unwise!”

“The Nine Heavens has its own justice. Perhaps King of Hell Chu took advantage of some loophole. But things have already passed, and the Hei Mo clan has acknowledged that King of Hell Chu was not to blame. But if we… Haha, if King of Hell Chu could even take advantage of this justice, Golden Horse Riders Department does not have to think to know what happens in the end!”

Gao Sheng’s eyes flashed sharply, “Therefore, I believe that we must control ourselves in this matter no matter what!”

Jing Meng Hun sighed and sat down. With a crack, Yin Wu Tian’s hands had crushed the table’s edge in front of him. Their eyes were bloodshot red, but the two men now looked slightly slumped…

Facing with the laws of the Nine Heavens, even an Emperor level master would not dare to fight them, let alone King level.

“Yun He, those youths from the great clans…” Diwu Qing Rou waved his hands and smothered the air of hatred. He stated their current goal.

Diwu Qing Rou had a firm grasp of people’s mind and their character. After the two previous mistakes, he had become more cautious!

“Those young men… When they were arguing with each other, I heard that one of their names was Luo Ke Di. Another person was Ji Mo, and one with the surname Gu. As for the other two, I do not know their names.” Cheng Yun He said thoughtfully, “I also do not know if they are from a clan in Middle Three Heavens or Upper Three Heavens.”

“Luo Ke Di is the second young master of the Luo clan from Middle Three Heavens! Ji Mo is the second young master of the Ji clan from Middle Three Heavens.” The moment Gao Sheng heard these names, a trace of tension appeared on his face, “As for the surname Gu… Could it be a person of the Gu clan?”

Diwu Qing Rou’s countenance turned pale. He tapped his fingers gently on the table and did not say anything for a long time. Raising his eyebrows pensively, he allowed everyone to digest what Gao Sheng just said.

After a while, Diwu Qing Rou finally said slowly, “Among those people, could it be… that one of them was King of Hell Chu?”

  5. I was hoping everyone could point out the mistakes for me so I could edit this one myself. Or are there too many to point out?! Just trying to alleviate the editor’s workload.
    I am not a terrible writer; it is mostly my grammar that still needs improvement. My editor actually helped me a lot in this aspect.

    1. Well, here’s what I found. I can’t claim I’m correct, I know I’m not knowledgable enough to claim that. I tried though.
      Ok, here goes:

      “Jing Meng Hun would not even doubt this.” – Can’t explain why this looks wrong to me, I’d replace it with “Jing Meng Hun did not doubt this even for a second.” I know my version is correct, but I’m not sure whether it’s what you wanted to say.

      “If not, and they could not bring him any benefits, then what was the point of keeping them?” – Here’s a link on when to use a comma before “and.”

      “such a mistake like this one” – It’s either “such a mistake” or “a mistake like this one,” it can’t be both of them.

      “Now that you did not follow orders and did not cooperate, the mission that was almost complete became a failure.” – I don’t know why the “now” is there. Maybe say: ” because you did not follow orders.”

      “I went through a hard and dangerous journey to bring your brother back!” – You go on a journey, not through it. Maybe use: “went through a lot of hardships on the journey,” or something similar.

      “Diwu Qing Rou now asked with another intention as well.” – Probably need to replace “another” with “a different”. I don’t recall ever seeing “another intention” before, I could be wrong though.

      You used a comma after “but” three times, I’ll just link this rant post https://painintheenglish.com/case/4903/

  9. I thought the King level of Golden Horse are from Middle Heavens? Why did they say Hei Mo can’t intervene if they themselves are breaking the rules? IIRC that was during the battle with a Hei Mo clan when a Golden Horse rider was reminiscing his bandit ways in Middle Heavens. I forgot who it was.

    Anyways, correct me if I’m wrong.

    1. I think they meant the clans and sects cannot intervene but those guys in the golden horse are former bandits and outlaws from the middle heavens not part of the big clans /families and sects . At least thats how i made it up in my mind to make it work and make sense..

      1. Reading the paragraph again, you’re right. It might’ve been only the clans that follow this ruling. How shameless of those King level golden horse to speak like that, though.

      2. I’ve just read the next chapter and the word used “people of the middle heavens” clarified the point that no one from the middle heavens can intervene regardless if they’re rogue cultivators.

        To quote: “Since King of Hell Chu currently does not have the strength, in order to deal with us, he could only borrow strength… And speaking of borrowing strength, hmm, if their friendship is deep, they would help him. But people of Middle Three Heavens cannot get involved with matters of Lower Three Heavens. They could not openly help him… But if we provoke them first, this would be a different story…”

        Anyways, I’ll just throw it away on my plot hole bin. Still, my memory might be hazy and the king level of the golden riders aren’t from middle heavens so correct me if I’m wrong on this front.
